  1. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.globaltimes.cn/content/1178689.shtml) reduced by 77%. (I’m a bot)

    > Wuhan, the epicenter of the deadly coronavirus in Central China's Hubei Province, still faces a severe test after nearly two weeks of being in lockdown, as a large number of patients have not received timely treatment, causing more pressure and no turning point is in sight yet, officials and experts said.

    > The numbers of confirmed cases in Wuhan keep growing every day, which does not reflect the whole picture as analysts do not know the exact number of infections.

    > Wang Chen, vice president of the Chinese Academy of Engineering and an expert on respiratory and critical medicine, said in an interview with a state broadcaster on Wednesday night that it is still too early to predict the inflection point of the epidemic as Wuhan still faces a severe situation, and actual numbers of infections are still unknown.
